Justin Bieber is reportedly using friends to keep an eye on Selena Gomez's whereabouts.

The former Disney star was spotted with Orlando Bloom and the Baby singer's best friend Alfredo Flores at Los Angeles International Airport on 20 October.

In July, Bloom and Bieber had got into a scuffle at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. In the footage posted by TMZ, the 37-year-old actor is seen trying to punch the Canadian pop star.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, Bieber has told his friends including the 26-year-old music video director to be around her.

"Selena told Justin that she was going to be on that flight with Orlando, and Justin was definitely jealous and upset. But instead of showing that to Selena, he made sure his buddy Alfredo was with her to pretty much watch her and report back to Justin if anything happened," a source told the website. "Justin still is wearing the pants and manipulating Selena for his benefit, she'll never learn."

Bieber and Gomez had recently reconciled after multiple break-ups.

The Canadian singer was spotted with Kendall Jenner at Ferdi restaurant in Paris on 30 September and Gomez was reportedly furious about it.

"They text and still talk," the insider added. "No matter the fights and arguments they get into, Justin always gets her back. Always!"

Meanwhile, last year in October, Bloom and Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr shocked everyone when they said they have split after six years of marriage.

At that time, rumours emerged that the former Victoria's Secret Angel's closeness with Bieber was reportedly one of the reasons why her marriage to Bloom became strained.

The 31-year-old and Bieber were seen getting friendly at the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show in November 2012. Kerr was modelling and the 20-year-old was performing. The Sunday People claimed that Kerr spent hours talking with the Boyfriend singer at the fashion show after a party in a New York hotel.
